1. What happened to all the mechs?
|The very first species to go extinct as a result of the Reaper invasion.|
Sure you might argue it was mentioned that Aria's mercenary groups would bring their mechs into the battle against the Reapers, so I guess these groups somehow stockpiled an entire galaxy full of robots.
2. Why do Brute husks look like Elcor when they are explained to be a Turian/Krogan hybrid?
|Amused. Silly human, you can't hurt me. In Pain. Put down the shotgun human.|
3. What happened to the all-human Council?
Ambassador Udina lied to me, damned politicians! At the end of Mass Effect 1 after I let the original Council die, Udina stated that the new Council would be composed entirely of humans. During ME2, the Council didn't make an appearance (well it did, but that was when I played through as a nice Shepard who saved the Council in ME1), so I let it slide. But in ME3, you find that the original Council has been replaced by another Council made up of a Turian, an Asari, and a Salarian. Who needs continuity? Certainly not us gamers who bought the Mass Effect games just so we could see how our choices had consequences throughout the whole series...
4. How is the Reapers' armor so damn tough?
|Shepard ponders the mystery of Reaper-brand sheet metal.|
On a side note, am I the only person who wondered how the Reapers would hold up against the Molecular Disruption Device (Little Doctor, Dr. Device, etc) from Ender's Game?
